Valerie Harper Lists Her Santa Monica Hacienda For Sale

This $4.2 million casa would be the perfect hangout for Mary and Rhoda.

Valerie Harper, who skyrocketed to fame as beloved BFF Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, just listed her three-bed, two-bath hacienda-style home for sale in Santa Monica, CA, for $4.2 million. Harper has owned the home for nearly 20 years — she bought it back in 1996 for $765,000. Oh, how times (and price tags) have changed!

The 2,131-square-foot home, which was built in 1920, is just two blocks from the stunning Palisades Bluffs, which overlook the Pacific Ocean. And with high ceilings and a large fireplace in the living room, this is the perfect mountain retreat to cozy up by the fire and settle in for some girl talk.

A separate dining room opens to an interior courtyard, while the kitchen/family room combo opens out to the rear yard. The master bedroom features a pitched ceiling, and two additional bedrooms are adjoined by a jack-and-jill bath. Additional amenities include a dining patio, spacious backyard, and a sports court with a basketball hoop.

Harper and Mary Tyler Moore have maintained their friendship all these years. In fact, Harper appeared recently in a PBS documentary about her former co-star, titled Mary Tyler Moore: A Celebration. The actress, who is currently living with terminal cancer, continues to work in theater, TV, and film, including a recent guest spot on 2 Broke Girls, another popular show about hanging out with your bestie.
